NJ town hall closed for bed bugs to reopen

A New Jersey municipal building will reopen Friday, one day after it was closed because of a bed bug infestation.

Officials in Brick Township say an exterminator used a dog to pinpoint where the bugs were and the areas were treated.

The bugs were first found a month ago in a jail cell at the police department, which also is in the municipal building. They then surfaced in the human resources office and then the tax collector's office on Thursday.

Bricktown police worked from a mobile command unit while pest control experts did their job.
